Default Re: Daily Codes For All Of April!

Hmm. I just (11:54pm) entered the April 14th code, but it didn't work. Previous codes worked (I did April 9, 10 and 12).

I got it to work once I realised that it is a lower case 'L' and not an upper case 'I'.

Thumbs up Re: Daily Codes For All Of April!

Oh, that was it. Thanks!
Ya I thought it might be that kind of thing, but since it was 11:55 and I'd been doing taxes for hours beforehand, I failed to think of I -> l.

That's an impressively short listing for what it does. The version I played on mainframes (mainly at University of Washington computer labs) was very similar but had many additional features - the time warp, Tholians laying web, Romulans, Klingon Command ships and Super Command Ships with long-range tractor beams, planets you could mine for dilithium crystals if needed, and you could even sometimes get the Enterprise destroyed but manage to survive and take commander of another less-capable ship. Like Rogue, people kept hacking in random features so it got to be pretty full of quirky details, which I liked a lot.
